As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Video || Trump: Other Press Passes Could be Pulled

President Trump Friday said other reporters’ press passes could be taken away and said he has not made a decision on whether CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s pass would be permanently pulled.

“I haven’t made that decision [on Acosta] but it could be others also,” Trump said.

Trump spoke to reporters on the South Lawn Friday before departing for Paris, France. Acosta’s pass was pulled after he refused to stop asking questions during a press conference Wednesday after being told to by the president. He ended up wrestling with an intern for the microphone.

I think Jim Acosta is a very unprofessional man . . . He gets paid to do that. He gets paid to burst in. He’s a very unprofessional guy. Whether it was with me or Ronald Reagan or anybody else, he would have done the same thing. I don’t think he’s a smart person, but he’s got a loud voice.

Trump also attacked American Urban Radio Network correspondent April Ryan, who stood up and asked a question at the press conference without being called on and at first refused to sit down.

It’s the same thing with April Ryan . . . I watch her get up. You talk about somebody who’s a loser. She doesn’t know what the hell she’s doing . . . She gets publicity, she gets a pay raise, and she gets a contract with, I think, CNN. But she’s very nasty, and she shouldn’t be. You’ve got to treat the White House and the office of the presidency with respect.

  1. Mr. President: Please — go ahead and permanently ban rude April Ryan from White House all media briefings, same as Jim Acosta. Both she and Jim Acosta are paid by leftists to be loudmouthed disrupters at press briefings, and are paid to insult and disrespect the president and his administration. They need to stop taking payouts from anti-Trump leftists, and start behaving like real journalists rather than tantrum-throwing, attention-seeking spoiled brats. Good riddance to both of them. Forever.

  2. These people are not Journalists. They masquerade as them while actually being Democrat Operatives dedicated to the downfall of freedom in their Quest for a Marxist radical Left wing Stalinist World where everyone is told to shut up.

  3. Are there no basic behavioral standards agreed upon by these White House press people in order to get a press pass to these meetings in the WH? I mean, could you just wander in naked for the meeting or show up wearing a clown suit or strumming a banjo and singing a Beattles’ hit song and then ask questions? Keith, what’s the story here?

    • The beatles were a BIG part in making ‘America’ what it is today. Their arrogance,
      seduction of stupid teenage (boomer) groupies, popularization of hidden government-issued LSD, replacement of Christianity with Hinduism,etc., all with the gushing help of the ‘media’, delivered the dementia that saturates our minds today.
